    National League MVP & World Championship season!

    1957 Hank Aaron Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 8, MEARS A7.5. "A unique feature of this Hank Aaron A93 model is our ability to place the bat to what is arguably Aaron's greatest season," begins the detailed letter of authenticity from leading bat expert John Taube, who goes on to explain that thirty-five inch signature model Hillerich & Bradsby A93 appears only in 1957 on Hammerin' Hank's ordering records. At twenty-eight ounces, this is a remarkably light weapon for a man who would one day dethrone the Babe for the sport's ultimate power record, but a quick check of the stats will indicate that size isn't everything. Aaron's forty-four homers, 132 runs batted in, 118 runs scored and 369 total bases all led the National League in 1957, leaving voters little option but to vote him the Senior Circuit's Most Valuable Player, his only season so honored. The 1957 campaign would conclude with a World Series victory over the perennial American League Champion New York Yankees, the proverbial cherry on top.

    Beyond the ideal vintage, the important lumber provides all the hallmarks of an ideal gamer, with heavy use in the form of ball marks, stitch impressions, blue and green rack streaks and evidence of a removed tape job on the uncracked handle. A small chip appears on the barrel under Aaron's facsimile signature. Certainly one of the most important and desirable Aaron bats ever to reach the hobby's auction block. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8. LOA from MEARS, A7.5.
